EIGE's Gender Equality Glossary and Thesaurus is now online

Node tabs


Dear Experts' Forum members, 

EIGE has just launched its online Gender Equality Glossary and Thesaurus, which features over 400 accurate, up-to-date and gender-sensitive definitions.

The glossary and thesaurus have been developed in cooperation with our stakeholders, including the European Commission, European Parliament and Council of Europe, as well as national machineries for gender equality, academia and partners of EIGE’s Resource and Documentation Centre.

In the future, it will be linked with EuroVoc, the multi-lingual EU-wide thesaurus and will be translated into all official EU languages. The first translated versions will be in French, German and Spanish.

With EIGE’s Gender Equality Glossary and Thesaurus you can : 

  - find  comprehensive definitions of gender equality terms based on official EU, Council of Europe and United Nations documents;

 - better understand new terminology in the area of gender equality;

 - easily search for terms and download them;

 - discover which terms are preferred or outdated and  why;

 - tag  literary  resources  in  indexing or cataloguing  work.

We hope you find our communication material useful and we welcome any feedback on the Gender Equality Glossary and Thesaurus. For more information please contact Monika Bystrzycka at monika.bystrzycka@eige.europa.eu

Thank you in advance for spreading the word to your networks. We will also be covering the launch in Facebook and Twitter, so please share & retweet the message!
